Good question, Christa, we were talking about this issue at school. One point that several people made it that they need time. And time, in all schools is very precious. But good support, and some time, and a culture of sharing are a good start. We have been using a few faculty meetings a year as "learning exchanges" where some of the faculty present things they have developed in and for their classes, and we rotate through several stations to learn from each other. When you know someone else at your own school is working on learning or doing new things, I think it makes it easier to say you will do that too. 

Anyone else have good ways of supporting (and/or requiring) this type of learning for teachers?
